I was inspired today by the fact that a lot of the HHS and CFSAC committee events are broadcast via a live webstream. I think it really helps to make the whole research process a lot more transparent and empowers patients to be able to see what is being discussed. Does anyone find the webcasting to be useful with regards to making the decisions more transparent etc? If so I would like to get the UK ME/CFS Research Collaborative in September to be streamed via live web cast. Obviously so many patients cannot make this meeting. Moreover this meeting is largely funded via the MRC, therefore government and UK taxpayer. It is our right to see this. I am considering to start a petition..? What are your thoughts. It would certainly put a stop to all of this lack of patient involvement in research direction etc.
